    Re: Shine on Georgia Moon

    I bought a bottle of Georgia Moon, 100 proof. The idea was to see what pure corn tasted like as I developed my palate. Now that I have tasted it, I don't know how could finish the stuff unless I find a suitable mixer.

    Do any of you have suggestions on good ways to mix Georgia Moon?

    I have a theory: Until you can learn to appreciate the flavors in unaged whiskey, straight, you are unworthy to partake of the more aged whiskies that are on offer.

    Many will disagree, but I will say that those who disagree are weak and unwilling to take the time to learn properly.

    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"

    I think you are being a little tongue-in-cheek, but what you say has merit.

    You can taste HH in GM and you can discern what was essentially GM in EW Black.

    At times I do wish I lived in KY so that I could sample white dog from various distillers and do so frequently enough to be educational.

    Yow, that's pretty hardcore!

    I had some white dog last year at Four Roses and just loved it. Not as astringent as I was expecting. It was warm and rich in the same way that really good grappa is. Very educational, too. I'd buy it if FR would sell it!

    Cheers!

    I gave my jar to my college-aged son to mix with his fellow house mates.

    Hey Squash, I don't care for this stuff either but you can mix it with most any of the usual mixers. I would choose something citrus based.

    I agree with this theory. I love tasting the white dog / spirit, then going through a flight of aged bourbons from the same distiller. What happens for me, is that subtle undertones emerge that I usually discount. Those undertones end up being like a signature from the distillery for me. Darn...now I'm thirsty.

    My theory is I shouldn't drink anything I don't like.

    Re: Shine on Georgia Moon

    I like corn whiskey and, for that matter, bourbon new make, but a little goes a long way. It's just very rare that I approach my bar, with everything I have available, and decide what I'm in the mood for is corn whiskey.

    One tip I would give is treat corn whiskey the same way you do white tequila.

    I mixed some with Sprite, my theory being that corn whiskey might go well with corn sweetener, and it worked.

    I have a friend who likes almost nothing containing alcohol, and she thought it tasted nearly like plain Sprite, a good thing for her. She even preferred it to ginger and rye.
